QF5 Delayed By Tech, Bomb Threat

Fri Jan 03, 2003 8:50 am

Melbourne radio station 3AW this morning reported that QF5 SYD-FRA was delayed by more than 9 hrs yesterday. Initially a 2 hr delay was caused due to "technical difficulties" the plane then left the International Terminal but was recalled after a bomb threat note was found in the Terminal.

A search of the aircraft by Police using dogs found no trace of explosives and the flight departed after a further delay of 7 hours.

I can find no trace of this news item on the web, but QANTAS flight status page has the flight departing SIN at 07:19 this morning when it should have left at 22:55 last night. This flight is code-shared with BA as BA7305.

Lol, must be, there is a fair bit of footage of it now on tv, of the 744 at SYD with security around it.
